Mushrooms on the lawn

Are they a problem or should I just leave them? I seem to be getting quite a few at the moment.

    So is everyone else, it's the season for them.  They are only a problem if you don't like the look of them, in which case, knock them over, rake them up and compost them or bin them.  If you handle them, wash your hands, JIC.  If you leave them alone, they will disappear of their own accord in a week or two, sometimes sooner.

    Mushrooms are a sign your garden is healthy!  They are part of the way dead organic matter gets broken into simple compounds which plants can take up.

    They are all good in the basic sense - all attractive too. They don't bite and rarely leap into your mouth of their own accord.
    In all honesty, I can't see what the fuss is about.
    Not sure what the position is in the UK but in France, your local Pharmacist would be able to advise you.
    If you aren't sure, don't eat - quite simple really.

    There are facebook groups for that, which I'd combine with a good id book before cooking anything up

    Looks like the 'bad' mushrooms might be floating around here .... :D

    I enjoy looking at them in the grass @Meomye. Enjoy looking at yours too  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
